On July, 9, 1997, the bells at Royal Oak Beaumont rang to signal that a new baby had been born. That baby was me. Since the day I was born, I have been influenced by the people around me. The people in my life have made me who I am today. My whole life, I have had two families, my mom and her husband and my dad and his wife. My mom has been remarried twice. To me, having two families is great. There are six children, four boys, two girls. When I was little, I had two dads, which I loved because it meant I was “daddy’s little girl” to two people. There was a lot I did not see about my mom’s husband. He was not a good person but to me he was a king, plus he gave me a baby brother! During this marriage, my mom’s husband was abusive toward her. Since I was so small, I did not see this draconian behavior and my older brother, CJ, did a great job of protecting me from the violence. Because CJ has always been my aegis against everything, I want him to walk me down the aisle when I get married. Looking back, I understand why my mom was scared to leave this relationship, but eventually she got out of this toxic relationship and life was safe again. I had a big brother to protect me and a little brother for me to protect. In 2005 my mom remarried. Her new husband had two sons, and I could not be more excited to have two new brothers! I have since formed a great friendship with them and look at them the same as my other siblings. Being the only girl out of so many children was awesome. I got treated like a princess, but I also felt very left out. As soon as I got accustomed to being the only girl, I got the news my mom would be having another baby! This auroral new bundle of joy turned out to be my baby sister, Isabelle. June 16, 2006... ... middle of paper ... ...ppened throughout my life, I have many goals. In September 2012, my cousin Geoff committed suicide. We were not close because he was nearly fifteen years older than I, but his death greatly impacted me and got me involved in suicide prevention programs. I have done two walks in honor of him and raised over 300 dollars in his honor. I look forward to doing many more. I am also trying to get a suicide prevention program established in Center Line. One of my biggest goals in life is to do the Out of the Darkness overnight walk in Washington D.C. Another on of my goals is to ge a good role model and inspiration for Isabelle. I want her to know that she is capable of succeeding in anything she does. The people who are in my life have created me and have given me reasons to have goals. I am thankful for my family and friends who continue to support me and help me grow.
